Conservatives Ask: Is Inclusionary Zoning Unconstitutional?

When it comes to conservatives
and the U.S. Supreme Court, abortion and labor rights are often
considered among their prime targets. Brett Kavanaugh’s ascension to the
court last fall, though, opened the road for a host of other challenges
for which conservatives have quietly been laying the groundwork for
years. This month, the Pacific Legal Foundation, a conservative law firm
based in California, made moves on one of those fronts, asking the Supreme Court
to take up a case challenging the constitutionality of inclusionary
zoning — a popular tool cities and states employ to increase affordable
housing and promote residential integration.
